Elderly people comprise the highest proportion of television viewers. However, they often struggle with new technologies and often out-rightly reject them due to their complexity. We propose a system to help people, especially the elderly, keep up with new technologies, such as IPTV and social networks with reduced efforts. This system integrates IPTV and social networking website with an interface using mobile phone. Speech to text technology is used as input to reduce the difficulty involved in interaction while viewing television. As speech is a more convenient and natural way of expression than text, we anticipate that people in all age groups would benefit from the system.
